AE Syntax

An evolved syntax highlighter. AE Syntax has grown into WP Code Editor Plus as an attempt to create a full blown web-based IDE for themes and plugins


First release of my first public plugin -- Biggest challenge is validating the readme.


Thanks to pothi for identifying a display issue where the editor's internal divs inherited a 190px margin-right. Now I have something to add to my Kvetch. Also important in this release is a known "issue" or feature that doesn't appear to be working.

I have attempted to integrate jQuery UI's Resizable to the editor so users can size their own editor as well. It produces no JS errors, and created the nested divs and CSS classes necessary, but does not resize. I have used wp_enqueue_script() to queue up jQ-ui-core, ui-widget, ui-mouse and ui-resize. My guess is it is an inherited style that is hiding the resize handle. If someone wishes to contribute a few lines of CSS to make the handle show up in the right place, that would be wonderful. It should be fixed in v.1.2.


Rebrand! The project has gained direction and scope and is no longer just for highlighting syntax, but now going the direction of an entire IDE replacement able to do anything you can online that you could do offline, or via ssh. I have always been a firm believer that "one should never edit code directly on the server" -- My goal is now to change that mindset, turning the production server/webpage into a production environment as well as a development and staging environment. Through revisions, output buffers, the sick hooks everywhere... why not. If theme test drive can do it with themes, why can't there be an all inclusive web based IDE. (Death to Desktop Applications! Viva platform independant code!).


No coding change, just changed the name back due to upgrade issues. Attempting to upgrade via the plugin panel was a big fail. I have learned a lot about scope and planning with my first plugin, and will do a lot better with the next one.
